Aires Culturelles/Aires Linguistiques - Linguistic Area/Cultural Areas
Studies of matches in the Atlantic Zone of Western Europe

On June 9-10, 2011, the CRBC (Centre de Recherche Bretonne et
Celtique) will organize at the University of Brest (Brittany, France) an
international conference which will bring together several researchers
(archaeologists, linguists, geneticists) who will compare their viewpoints on
the connections between the populations living in Atlantic Europe and the
languages spoken there from the late Paleolithic period? The conference is
the introductory stage of an interdisciplinary collaboration between
archaeologists, linguists, paleo-anthropologists, historians, geneticists on
the same subject.

The received doctrine for the origin of the Celts in Western Europe was
centered upon the idea of an Indo-European Invasion in the Copper Age
(4th millennium B.C.), by horse-riding warrior pastoralists. The subsequent
process of Celtic language evolution would therefore have taken place in
the II and I millennium, that is in the Bronze and Iron Age. The evidence
collected by archaeology in the last thirty years overwhelmingly prove the
absence of any large scale invasion in Europe, and the uninterrupted
continuity of most Copper and Bronze Age cultures of Europe from
Neolithic, and of most Neolithic cultures from Mesolithic and final Paleolithic.
Some of the participants hold for the PCP (Paleolithic Continuity Paradigm) ,
which considers that the recent prehistory of Western Europe - from the
Megalithic culture through the Beaker Bell to the colonialistic La Tène - must
have all been Celtic. Consequently, the duration of the colonial expansion of
the Celts was much longer than thought, and its direction was from West to
East and not vice versa. Other participants will expound different
viewpoints.
